What are the consequences of driving without auto insurance?

If you’re considering driving without auto insurance, don’t do it. The consequence for driving without car insurance often significantly exceeds the cost of auto insurance premiums. So, you might be better off getting an auto insurance policy – even if you start off with the minimum state requirements.

All states have minimum requirements for auto insurance. The rules vary from one state to the next, but the following consequences are common among most states:

  • You’ll pay fines.
  • The state might cancel your vehicle registration, and then you’ll need to pay restoration fees.
  • You might go to jail.
  • You might receive traffic tickets – in addition to the tickets you receive for getting pulled over in the first place.
  • You might lose your driving privilege.

Avoid Financial Devastation

If you’re involved in a vehicular accident and it’s your fault, the consequences will pile on. You’ll likely pay the other driver’s losses, as well as take care of your own losses — all out of your pocket. The bill for this can be quite expensive when you consider the cost of repairing or replacing a car and the cost of medical treatment if someone is hurt. Furthermore, the other driver can sue you for loss wages, and in some states, they also can sue for pain and suffering and emotional distress. This means you can lose your home, whatever you have in your bank account and even future wages.
